A Storm of Light at the Tone Deaf showcase (more by Greg Cristman)
A Storm of Light plays NYC TONIGHT as part of a round of dates with Mustard Gas & Roses (mem Isis) and Magic Circle. Tickets are still available for the Saint Vitus show. The band recently played a round of dates surrounding SXSW including the Tone Deaf showcase (pictures). Tonight's show is in direct competition with Hull, Mutilation Rites, Batillus and Trenchgrinder at Acheron, the latter two of which played Lovejoy's as part of the BV Day Party. Hull also played Red 7 with Fear on 3/15, which was down the street from Pallbearer, Screaming Females, Ringworm & Power Trip (pictures).
Punk rock crew Kim Phuc will team with Family Curse and Herzog Rising to play Death By Audio on April 7th. The show is one of a few notable and recently added shows at the space, including April 14th with White Suns (who have a new LP on Load, stream a song below), Pop 1280, and Richard, April 28th with Dysrhythmia, Kayo Dot & Vaura, and 4/29 with a mystery guest, Child Abuse, Behold...The Arctopus and PAK.
Check out the recent Decibel Flexi of In Solitude covering Samhain's "Mother of Mercy".
Youth Attack have updated their site with orders for the new Salvation House of the Beating Hell EP, new second Hoax EP, a new ARTS LP Thousand Wounds of War, and so much more. Head to their site for more details (I recommend the Hoax, ARTS and Salvation records).
If you missed it, we posted two sets of pictures from Deatmatch during SXSW (SET 1, SET 2), a set of pictures from Lovejoy's during SXSW, my official showcase during SXSW, and pictures from our bridge show. We welcomed a new EP from Cop Problem, interviews with Black God, new shows from Ilsa, Rorschach, Old Man Gloom, D-Clone, Young Widows, Autopsy and more. Got stoked and then immediately diappointed with the Kiss it Goodbye reunion and scratched our heads in disbelief at the "Death to All" reunion and Wolvhammer cover of The Cure (the latter in a positive way).
More suggested shows, a stream of a new Horseback song, the Split Cranium LP (with Aaron of Isis and members of Circle) a 16 song, an Author & Punisher song, a White Suns song and more is below. What did I miss?
Child Abuse opening for The Bastard Noise (more here)
Liturgy will hit the road for a string of dates with Child Abuse before touring on their own in the west and the southwest through July and into August. That tour kick off the right way at Death By Audio on July 6th (tonight).
Liturgy and CA will play alongside White Suns and The Dreebs (show at 8PM).
UPDATE: Greg from Liturgy is sick in the hospital so they had to cancel tonight's show. Get well soon Greg!
Tonight's show, and the one they played at Shea Stadium on July 4th, mark the first action in a good bit for the "white metal" (as in not black metal, and also not "sieg heil") stalwarts. The band completed a round of touring earlier this year that included appearances at SXSW 2010 (including our Attitude Adjustment party at Red 7).
Full Liturgy dates and some video below...

Since I was too busy air-guitarin' out at Floor at Europa/Jucifer at Union Pool on Saturday (6/26), Bastard Noise at Cake Shop just wasn't in the cards for the evening. So of course, there was no other recourse but to make sure to catch the band when they played Death By Audio on Monday (6/28) with Child Abuse. Unfortunately, I missed the openers, but managed to slide in time to catch Child Abuse wreck it with their noise-damaged rock/metal/punk.
After an extended changeover in the ten million degree heat, Bastard Noise took to the stage to pummel the crowd with their signature bass-riffy, noise-punctuated set. Videographer scuffles aside (one decided it would be a good idea to stand front and center on top of a pair of cinder blocks, arms outstretched - he was met with an angry mob), their set was fantastic. Bassist Eric Wood riffs on his bass better than most on the guitar, mixing chords with solos and keeping it thoroughly technical yet brutal. W. T. Nelson adds noise squelches, texture, and synthy elements aplenty from atop his hospital gurney/noise laboratory.
Tons more pics from the show, and some videos are below...
Arab on Radar
Dudefest isn't the only recipients of the Arab on Radar return, as NYC and ten other cities will get a taste of their own during select dates in July, August and September. The dates include Cake Shop in NYC on July 31st with Child Abuse, No Babies, and Orange Coax. Full dates for the band are below.
One of the supporting bands a the show, Child Abuse, are also scheduled to play Shea Stadium on June 2nd as part of a benefit for the victims of the Gulf Coast alongside headliner Zs, Controlled Bleeding, Cellular Chaos (feat Weasel Walter), and with DJ 1000TimesYes. All proceeds go towards The Greater New Orleans Foundation. Show flyer is below.

From a recent interview with Child Abuse:
Do you condone the abuse of children?Somwhere in between noise, metal, and avant-jazz lies Child Abuse, the wildman trio from NYC that welcomed their new album Cut and Run via Lovepump United last week. The band recently debuted the new track "Bebe" via the Village Voice, but are welcoming a new song in the form of "Froze Toes" available for download above.
Tim: Only if there's something in it for me.
Luke: Absolutely not. Boring answer, I know... but who does condone abusing children?
Would you consider your music an appropriate soundtrack during the abuse of children, whether you condone the act or not?
Tim: Not really. I think Radiohead would be better. Actually no... Vampire Weekend.
Luke: Hmm good question... .I think the most perverse soundtrack would have to be something from the bel canto tradition... something light and airy... maybe a piece from a Verdi opera.
Oran: I don't think it's appropriate to abuse children to any music.
Child Abuse are celebrating the glitchy, cofrontational Cut and Run at a show at Glasslands on 4/26, with an assist from Mick Barr (who played Europa with Krallice, pics are coming), Skeleton$ and Grooms (who play PA on 5/5 with Hot Hot Heat and Bowery on 5/26 with Holly Miranda).
Some Child Abuse video and current tour dates are below.

If you like your noise rock caustic, filthy, and dressed up in a dead mouse costume, then clear your schedule on Monday night (8/10) and head down to Death By Audio.
Rodent obsessed, toilet-humored, ill-tongued masked wackos. Weed-fueled, grinding sludge, noise-damaged, broken oscillator junkyard trio. Demented cheese lovers with a beef against God. Yeah The White Mice from Providence are all those things and more. Too fucked up and noise fixated for the average metalhead, too stoned, sleazy and salacious for the hipster and punk set, The White Mice have for years existed on the fringes of every underground scene and belonged to none of em.Cacaw, Liturgy, and White Suns also play the Brooklyn show on Monday. Expect White Mice to crank out some new material from their upcoming debut on 20 Buck Spin, Ganjahovahdose, due in October. One of those tracks, "PasssTheFissst", is available for download above (along with Liturgy's "Ecstatic Rite", which you first saw here).
Musically speaking one might hear traces of Melvins, Brainbombs, Buzzoven and their Providence brethren in Landed, Drop Dead and Lightning Bolt. And yet the Mice, whose devastatingly loud (like Dino Jr. loud), crude and visually incredible live show leaves mouths agape and the uninitiated properly converted, easily stand apart from any proper comparison as a beast of their own making.
After NYC, White Mice will scoot down the east coast eventually crash landing at the absolutely killer Filth City Fest II in Baltimore, MD with a massive lineup of Hammers of Misfortune, Ludicra (both are in NYC on 8/11, tickets here), Asshole Parade (who are coming to NYC), Defeatist (who played BV Show No Mercy), Pulling Teeth, Man Will Destroy Himself, Cough (who played Europa with Liturgy), Fight Amp (who are playing NYC in September), Infernal Stronghold, and soooooo many others. Tickets are still available. Set times and the full band list is below.
White Mice is currently featured on a new cassette-only comp on Damage Rituals entitled The Dead Hand: Human Machines along with a cast of out-there heavy luminaries like Ocrilim (aka Mick Barr), STATS (who also played BV / Show No Mercy), Vaz, Drunkdriver, Child Abuse, Dysrhythmia, Zs, and many many others. Pick that up here.
The next edition of Show No Mercy will feature Mick Barr, Gnaw, and Castevet and will take place on Sept 6th at Public Assembly.
White Mice tour dates, as well as video of White Mice, Liturgy, drunkdriver, and Child Abuse are below....

NY EYE & EAR FEST II - JULY 9 - 12, 2009!The fest is a part II to the December event of the same name. The Fest's four days of music kick off at the Knitting Factory on July 9th. The bands there include Grooms, Liturgy and Love Like Deloreans (to name a few) with headliners Nymph and Neg-Fi. The fest returns to the Knit on Friday, July 10th, for a show with Magik Markers, Child Abuse and more. In addition to the venue's two floors of music, its already-creepy basement will be turned into a "Video Art Installation and a 7-hour Continuous Drone Room."
4 DAYS - 3 VENUES - 2 BOROUGHS
Knitting Factory & 92Y Tribeca in Manhattan & Death By Audio in Brooklyn
Pendu presents: NY Eye & Ear Fest II ... a massive 4-day New Music and Arts Fete showcasing some of the most exciting bands, artists, and filmmakers currently living and working here in NYC. In addition, NYE&E assembles a Record Fair featuring NYC-based Record Labels and Vendors selling LPs, CDs, 7''s, cassettes, lathes, comics, zines, stickers, and art prints.
The Fest then switches to the 92YTribeca on Saturday for a concert and a free record fair. Also at 92Y will be a program called "Women of NYCinema," with films and music from Sarah Lipstate (aka Noveller), Liz Wendelbo, Rachel Blackwell and Dirty Churches. The vendors range from big names like Matador Records to the recently featured Journal of Popular Noise to notable jazz label ESP-Disk.
The fest's final, fourth day moves to Brooklyn for a closing party at Death by Audio. That lineup includes Murdertronics, Team Robespierre, Talibam!, Total Abuse and Drunkdriver.
Separate from the festival, on Thursday, July 9th the 92YTribeca will screen filmmaker Brendan Toller's I Need That Record, a documentary about the problems facing record stores around the country. It will be the NYC premiere of the movie that was getting some attention already all the back on Record Store Day 2008. The movie includes interviews with Thurston Moore, Ian Mackaye, Mike Watt, Chris Frantz and more. Toller will be on hand for the showing. Tickets are on sale.
More details on the film (with video trailer) and the Ear and Eye Festival, below...
In their disheveled attic studio, the members of Gay Beast don't talk mathematics. Early on, they don't talk much at all. Today, singer and keyboardist Dan Luedtke is busy screen-printing the inserts for the vinyl version of the band's latest spazz-rock collection, Second Wave. The process, it seems, is nearly as painstaking as creating an actual Gay Beast tune, minus the eyeballs-on-fire jitters their adrenal scores provoke...The noisy Minneapolis band kicks off a three night stay in in NYC, tonight (6/3), with a show at the Silent Barn featuring Satanized, Joe Lentini and Hot Guts. They'll be at Bruar Falls June 4th with Talk Normal and Body Type[s], and at the Market Hotel on June 5th with Titan, Child Abuse, NYMPH and Liturgy.
Luedtke: Our friends in AIDS Wolf are on the label. We were looking for a label, putting together demo packages, trying to do it differently this time, trying to be more proactive. They were going to sign two bands for '09. The label owner lives in Vienna, so there was a bit of a courting period, talking to each other on the phone.
Explain the new record's title, Second Wave.
Luedtke: Second Wave relates to second-wave feminism, and the songs include portraits of different feminists. Before this record, we did a split 7-inch about Donna Harroway. There's a song about Andrea Dworkin. For me there's an interest because I feel it intersects with queer politics a lot. We can look at what feminists worked on as a way to talk about personal politics and strategies for changing things. There is a lot of interest with the second-wave feminist era because there was a lot of idea creation happening. Modern, radical ideas, some of which were far-fetched and impractical. People wanted something so badly they'd make up new means for accomplishing it.
Gay Beast's Second Wave LP came out a few weeks ago, at the end of May on Skin Graft Records. Check them out for yourself. There's a video of Gay Beast at NYC's Cake Shop in 2006, with all tour dates, below...

Cattle Decapitation live @ Gilman, photo by Taija Lynn
Cattle Decapitation have announced dates in support of their new record, The Harvest Floor due on 1/20/09. Supported by Psyopus, Book Of Black Earth, and Gigan, full tour dates are below, but no NYC just yet.
Adding insult on top of insult to injury, Maryland Death Fest have added powerviolence bad-asses Despise You (with Phil Vera of Crom), as well as grinders Pigsty. This is on top of Mayhem, Bolt Thrower, Enslaved and soooo many others... Unfortunately, Repulsion have cancelled their appearance.
Need a fix of fun, skull-splitting hardcore? Vitamin X have dropped their new record, Full Scale Assault on Tankcrimes and it is one awe-inspiring slab of lightning riffery and old-school hardcore punk produced by none other than Steve Albini at Electrical Audio Studios. Sporting ultra-suh-weeeet artwork by John Baizley of Baroness, the band has been kind enough to drop off a pair of MP3s from the record... check out "Deal With it" featuring John Brannon of Negative Approach and "You Suck" downloadable above and pick up the album here.
How many times has a headliner you dug dropped off a bill, and you were actually pleased with the results? In a bit of shuffling, Doomriders have dropped off their bill with Tombs at Union Pool on 12/20 (frown), BUT Bloodhorse (who are working on a new record), Keelhaul(!), and Acid Tiger (Ben from Cave-in, Converge) have been added! So Keelhaul in NYC, huh? Exciting, and it sounds like they have more than just the show on their agenda...
We are going to Brooklyn to record another cd with Andrew Schneider in December. Yee haw.-[Keelhaul myspace]NOICE! Meanwhile, look for Tombs to play a show at Death By Audio on Dec 6th, play a few shows opening for Don Caballero at both Maxwell's and Europa, and embark on a short tour in the new year with Dysrhythmia. Full Keelhaul and Tombs dates are below.
Doomers My Dying Bride have revealed details of their new album, For Lies I Sire due in 2009 via Peaceville! Spanning nine tracks and recorded with producer Mags, vocalist Aaron Stainhorpe recently discussed the new record with Beyond The Dark Horizon.
Saros, the Bay Area blackened prog metal band contructed from members of the almighty Weakling and Amber Asylum, will drop their new album Acrid Plains on Profound Lore 2/17/09. Album art is below and check out the new MP3, "Reversion" available for download above.
Mammoth Grinder are scheduled to rage through the tri-state in the new year. The trio will be in town on Jan 3rd to double up.. playing shows at ABC No Rio (matinee) AND The Charleston (night) in support of their long-player Rage & Ruin and No Results 7" due together on Assassinated Records. Alternating between thundering doom and crusty hardcore, check out heavily doom-oriented "God is Stuck in a Black Hole " from Rage & Ruin, downloadable above.
Gracial death-doomers Hooded Menace are responsible for the massive Fulfill The Curse on Razorback Records. It's out NOW and it's absolutely frightening.. highly reccomended for fans of Coffins and death-doom in particular. Check out the track "Grasp Of The Beastwoman" from Fulfill The Curse and pray for your own safety that these Finns never make it to the US... it'll be a massacre.
